The production of brass products
In today’s world, where environmental concerns are paramount, promoting sustainability in all spheres of life has become imperative. One such area where sustainable practices can make a significant impact is in the production of brass.
This versatile and popular copper and zinc alloy, finds its applications in many diverse industries, including plumbing, musical instruments, electrical fittings and as in the case of Joseph Giles, luxury hardware for doors, windows and cabinets. However, the extraction, refinement and manufacturing processes associated with its production have the potential to cause devastating effects on the environment.
To address this issue, the brass industry has started to actively embrace the requirement for sustainable practices. For instance, manufacturers are now starting to adopt recycling techniques, reducing the need for new raw material extraction. Additionally, advancements in energy efficient technologies have helped minimize the environmental footprint of brass production by reducing energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.
